Fernwood Holiday Park

Fernwood Holiday Park is now under new ownership, with my wife and I having taken over on 8th March. We are aware some work is required, but the park has seen many improvements already, including letting people have a lie-in, as well as a refurbished kitchen, clean ablutions and very much tidier grounds.

Offers all facilities, including washing mashines and several ovens to have a pizza or two. Showers take are 50 Cent for 6 minutes. Overall nice spot but not cheap. Kayak tours through Abel tasman start nearby, would recommend these as well.

Great place to camp after hiking Able Tasman. Facilities were up to date, very very clean with great hot showers($3 for 6 mintues) and washer/dryer. The owners are so, so nice and helpful and even lent us their ketchup for our daughter's hotdog. They obviously work very very hard. There were birds that my daughter loved to look at and a TV room that has some DVDs we borrowed for one night. Great value for the money!

$46 for two people on an unpowered site. For that you get Internet which isn't working. And of course you have to pay extra for the showers.
Worse price/performance ratio so far in NZ.
And as others already mentioned : it is situated between two noisy streets.

Would give it 10/10 if it had a dump station. Had to travel to the New World car park to empty the toilet cartridge. Lovely people.

Nice campground, well stocked kitchen. A garden which you can pick veges and herbs from, with friendly locals and owners.

Unpowered sites fairly close to road but not a massive problem if you park on the other side. Kitchen and showers very clean. Several locals living here but friendly, not a problem! $17 each for unpowered site and showers only 50c!
